GLASGOW: Last Monday at Rio

Monday, July 27th, 2009, 8pm-10-ish, FREE
The Rio Cafe
27 Hyndland Street,

Friends, it's the end of the month. Flashing the cash is for many of us but a distant memory, so please form yourselves into an orderly rammy and make your way to that haven of cheap dinners which is the Rio Cafe.

Top acts this month are Tim Turnbull, a poet who chooses from various of his lives for subject matter. Rural woodsman, Big Smoke lurker, Post-Punk decibel menace, Writer-in-Residence at Saughton prison, Tim may well have other incarnations I don't know about to draw on. Don't miss.

And there's Andy Fleming, fresh from the Wickerman festival. Not sure what Andy's going to perform for us. Maybe dense gonzo free-beat associative loopings? Maybe he'll just play the Hallelujah chorus ... on the banjo!

Robin Cairns is your compere. One or two five-minute open mic spots are still to be claimed. Please claim them!
